Osaka fincance

Hey i'm going to Osaka, on a student exchange. Kagoshima will be the first city I go to and I am hoping to open a bank account there. I was just wondering if this would be something that would be easy to do? Will my student visa and/or passport be enough to open an account? Any tips and advise would be helpful. Thanks.

Get "A Resident Card" so that the banking counter will clearly understand you are not a temporary visitor(tourist), but an exchange student who needs bank account.

You need resident car if you stay longer than 3 months.
